Lack of Will power won’t stop ‘Elf’ sequel

Will Ferrell hasn’t yet signed on for a second trip to the North Pole, but New Line is already making preparations for his return. The studio has signed “Old School” and “Starsky & Hutch” writer Scot Armstrong to start work on “Elf 2.” Armstrong was the last writer to do an uncredited rewrite on the original “Elf,” which grossed $173 million in its 2003 release. The mini-major is believed to have an understanding with Ferrell that gives it confidence to continue with the project, though there’s no deal with the actor yet and the movie doesn’t have a greenlight.
